The Deafening Echoes

I
from far beyond that limits the very sight
a new horizon awaits with a glow so bright
as the sea slowly changes from blue to yellow
a sigh from the heart that longed for tomorrow

II
keeps the beating in the rhythm of the waves rushing
let the ripples of the water tune a haunting melody
from the deepest deep, deafening echoes wailing
mourning an emptiness of darkened melancholy

III
like a floating wreath tossed from the ocean’s depth
in the delusion of a sirens song seeking for death
allured a soul into the ravenous mouth of wrath
vanished to linger forever more in an unending path

IV
the world stood still as the time awaits to go and linger
every step into the unwinding road on destiny’s forever
printed the sand to mark the journey of the unseen
without the shadow from behind an echoes forgotten

V
remnants of the broken past are all that was to remain
the vanishing visions of thoughts, saving its domain
in fragments and pieces, all scattered and blown away
leaving behind the perfumed dust of memories to stay

VI
the misty coldness now starts chilling the softened skin
penetrating deep into the flesh freezing the blood vein
feel the gusty wind that withholds the passing of time
in whispers of deafening echoes on a mellow chime

VII
ripples from the waves upon the shore creeping slow
on the pearly sand finding the shore in restless flow
the waters that shiver from every wave crashing
like tears from tormenting pain, a heart is bleeding

VIII
now the darkened dusk hover the ocean floor
a prison cell in a dark room without an open door
in long night that awaits the glowing ray of dawn
eyes never sleep nor the waves ever drawn

IX
till the open arms of the horizon are spread once more
gather the cold winds and the waves as it did before
out from darkness into the brightness of the earthy glow
the silent sigh of deafening echoes still prevail to bestow
